Far Infrared Technologies

A Development Project of

Pacific Intertech Corporation

(a wholly owned subsidiary of Aqua Technology Water Stores)


INTRODUCTION

Pacific Intertech Corporation is a Nevada Corporation. The company was formed by Aqua Technology to evaluate and implement new technologies developed at various research and development organizations in the United States and overseas.

We specialize in bringing together complementary technologies that show the potential for becoming major product forces in their respective markets.

It is our intention to combine and refine the development efforts of the scientists involved so that we can develop state of the art products which encompass water and air treatment and purification and heat transfer technologies for general industry and electronics.

Pacific Intertech Corporation is in the process of developing agreements with several research and development organizations to commercialize new products from technologies which they have developed.

Four far infrared technologies which Pacific Intertech Corporation will be developing are:

(1) a new "ceramic", heat-dispersive material which, when applied as a paint-type coating on hot surfaces converts excess thermal energy into infrared energy and removes that energy from the hot surface at diffusion rates far higher than that possible with natural or forced convection cooling.

The material will be available as a paint, dip or spray and will find uses on a wide variety of materials including electronic and semiconductor devices, enclosures and thermoelectric heat transfer devices and related equipments, engines, carburetors, bearings, catalytic converters, exhaust systems, radiator cooling systems, avionics equipments, turbines and other applications.

(2) a general purpose air and surface sterilization system which will

(a) remove organic contaminants from surrounding air;

(b) sterilize air passing through the device; and

((c)) radiate either a low or high intensity sterilization "wave" to sterilize surfaces or solid materials in close proximity to the device.

The technology will be applied to medical and dental facilities, electronics clean rooms, aircraft, bus, train and general transportation cabin areas, public restrooms and food preparation areas.

(3) a general purpose natural juice sterilizer which will

(a) reduce or eliminate pathogenic materials found in raw fruit and vegetable materials which are used for the production of natural juices; and

(b) reduce non-pathogenic materials such as mold and yeast which are known to reduce the \useful, shelf-life of these natural juices.

These procedures are carried out without heating(pasteurization) and can be conducted on juices already in market-ready containers.

The process has been tested and proven to destroy extremely high levels ofE.Coli 157:H7, Salmonella and Listeria contained within plastic containers of fruit juices without increasing the temperature of the product even one degree Fahrenheit.

(4) a new water distillation system for both the consumer and medical/dental market which will produce pure steam distilled water and eliminate several of the major problems facing the distiller industry today, including higher energy consumption, excessive heat and scaling.

The new distiller technology will include provisions for continual sterilization of the stored, distilled water product, a feature which is imperative for medical and dental applications. Increased production rates, lower costs per gallon, reduced maintenance and repair and lower manufacturing costs which place distillation system costs on a par with reverse osmosis and filtration technologies are the goals of this new design.

 

The system design is so efficient is the first practical solar powered distiller which can produce enough water for a small family during an 8-hour daylight period using a single, small solar panel.

International water dealers take notice - this is what will solve your Third World water purification problems!!


NEEDS AND MISSION:

Pacific Intertech Corporation is at a point where it is ready to seek major corporate partners in each of the market areas identified above. These corporate partners will be asked to commit to contributing for the next three years to bring engineering prototypes to manufacturing prototypes which any one or all of the contributing partners might license from Pacific Intertech Corporation. Each licensee will also pay royalties to Pacific Intertech Corporation based on the manufactured cost of each product produced.

Pacific Intertech Corporation's mission will be to advance the technologies brought to it to produce products which will yield major benefits to the peoples of the world in terms of their health and well being and enhance their standard of living. It is our desire to be a company that is recognized for its people oriented products and its commitment to excellence for its customers and its employees while achieving a dominant economic and business stature throughout the world.

DETAILS OF INITIAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

HEAT TRANSFER/DISPERSION PROJECT:

High temperature operating environments in industry, electronics and even consumer products are known to reduce lifetime and limit operational capabilities of these devices. Electronic components(chips, amplifiers, etc.) all have thermal operating limits which are designed to prevent the device from self-destruction under extended exposure to excess thermal energy.

In many cases, heat itself limits the peak performance which can be attained by these devices. Computer chip design(speed and packing density) is highly sensitive to operating temperature. Automobile engines, carburetors, bearings, radiators and other high-temperature components could operate far more efficiently and with a longer, useful lifetime if a portion of the thermal energy generated by or around the subject device is reduced.

A wide variety of solutions have been offered to these various problems: cooling fans are installed where forced convection can carry away some of the excess thermal energy; water or other fluids/gasses circulate in or around many of these hot devices in order to remove heat which could cause operational interruptions or catastrophic failures.

Now, a new method of heat dispersion/removal has been developed. This new process relies on the high-efficiency conversion of one type of energy(thermal) into another type of energy(infrared) in a manner such that this conversion process draws more thermal energy from the heat source than conventional heat removal technologies.

An entirely new class of semi conductive, "ceramic" materials is now available for this energy conversion process. The ability to simply coat various devices which exhibit excess heat conditions reduces the problem of heat dispersion to one which is solved as simply as painting, dipping or spraying the surface(s) to be affected.

GENERAL PURPOSE AIR AND SURFACE STERILIZER PROJECT

There is an ever-increasing number of technical, medical and industrial reports which indicate the serious nature of biological and organic chemical hazards in the workplace

Many of these biological and organic hazards are difficult to localize and in many cases difficult to eradicate due to their virulence or tenacity in adhering to or hiding inside cooperative or non-cooperative environments.

Several types of air and surface sterilization technologies exist but are limited in their abilities by either cost or effectiveness against an ever widening range of biological or organic chemical entities.

Conventional air "treatment" systems including ozone and activated carbon have serious limitations when called upon to eradicate target biological and chemical materials which are not readily accessible or which cannot circulate through the device.

A new mechanism has been developed which is capable of destroying microbes both in the air passing through the device as well as microbes which lie on or beneath the surface of various objects in the area being treated

For example. A hospital emergency or patient room may contain a wide variety of biological hazards present due to either direct contact or aerosol effects. These hazards may be spread throughout the entire volume of the room and are difficult to localize or treat with chemicals or other topical antiseptics.

The device emits a unique, biocidal electronic wave which travels through the air and contacts all exposed surfaces in the treatment area. The effect is similar to a sound wave which will find its way into every nook and cranny in a closed space where the sound wave is present.

The intensity of this wave will determine whether just the visible surface is sterilized or if sterilization is conducted deep into materials such as mattresses, pillows, rugs, curtains or other porous materials which can hide microorganisms from conventional ozone and re circulating air treatment systems.

Organic, airborne contaminants passing through the device will be reduced to water vapor and simple, non-toxic carbon substances.

The utility of devices such as this comes on the heels of concerns being voiced by a wide variety of industrial and medical experts regarding the airborne transmission of viral materials such as TB in closed environments such as airline passenger compartments, closed hospital rooms and visiting areas as well as those aerosols which may be present due to invasive or non-invasive procedures in standard dental offices.

These concerns extend to areas such as public restrooms, food preparation areas in restaurants and other public places where individuals carrying communicable diseases may inadvertently spread such microbes into the air or onto surface objects contacted by other individuals.

The ability of devices such as this one to constantly sanitize and sterilize the air and surfaces within these types of high-risk areas is now possible and awaits final development and testing prior to its implementation in a wide range of waiting markets.

The utility of this device in medical and dental environments where a wide variety of caustic and potentially hazardous chemicals may be present in an aerosolized form is obvious.

NATURAL JUICE STERILIZATION PROJECT

A widening segment of the fruit and juice packaging industry is producing so-called natural juices---juices that when delivered to the consumer, exhibit little or no change from the natural environment in which they have been raised and picked.

Such juices naturally have a short shelf-life due to a wide variety of spoilage mechanisms(yeast, mold,etc.) which tend to grow in a non-sterilized environment.

In addition, the process of picking, transporting and even processing such fruits and vegetables can result in various pathogenic organisms being picked up from either human or animal sources during one or more of these processes.

Naturally, the odds of encountering pathogenic or non-pathogenic materials in these natural juices increases with both time and the number of manufacturers following this production process. Recently, the Odwalla Corporation found a deadly strain of e.coli bacteria in hundreds of packaged products throughout the Western United States. A young child in Colorado died after drinking some of this Odwalla juice which was subsequently found to contain the deadly e.coli strain.

The use of "flash-pasteurization" techniques to apply a short "burst" of heat to these fruit and vegetable juices destroys the "natural" or "no-heat applied" characteristic of the product. For the "purist" who seeks natural juices and wants all of the original enzymes, pectin, cellulose and other materials in the juice as they appeared in nature, these heat-oriented process completely destroys that objective.

The new technology being developed by Pacific Intertech Corporation utilizes a narrow-band infrared spectrum to destroy microbiological cell-division processes, thus reducing or completely eliminating both pathogenic and non-pathogenic materials depending on exposure time and microbe type.

The process adds NO heat to the juice and can penetrate market-ready containers, sterilizing the juices inside such containers without additional processing or contact.

DISTILLATION PROJECT:

For many years people have been forced to live without the benefit of water that is free of contamination from either or both dissolved solids and bacteria. Only within the last few years have people come to realize that the water being provided by municipal water treatment facilities is not the best water for them to be drinking.

Consider Milwaukee, Wisconsin which in 1994 had an outbreak of cryptosporidium which was transported to the general population by the municipal water system. Over 100 people died from this "accident" and over 400,000 others were made seriously ill from this outbreak. Since then, several other major US cities have had similar outbreaks.

This parasitic infestation now is being found in England and other areas overseas. It's characteristics are such that conventional municipal water treatment techniques are useless in eradication of the parasite. Hundreds of other microbes are now being found to also be impervious to conventional water "purification techniques". The situation is worsening daily.

The most effective means available to produce pure water is steam distillation. This method has not had widespread acceptance among the general population because of the problems of heating element scaling, high energy use, slow startup, high temperature operation and the high cost of materials required in order to maintain long equipment life.

Even with all of these strikes against it, steam distillation is becoming the method of water production of choice. The dangers of microbiological contamination is forcing this technology to the forefront of the market and the battle against these contaminants.

Small portable distillers for home use have been on the market for some time as well as several automatic distillers which can be installed for complete home use in those areas where the use of distilled water is desired. These units still have all, or most, of the design problems listed above.

We have just completed the preliminary development of several technologies which will solve most if not all of the problems distillers have encountered in the past and which were outlined above. Pacific Intertech Corporation is now ready to begin a two part development program for this new category of distillation systems:

(1) the development and test of a unique device which will increase the output of any closed distillation system design or alternatively reduce the power requirements to produce the current, rated output.

This technology can be adapted to virtually all distillers currently in use in the marketplace as well as be added to most distiller manufacturer's product lines with little modification. The licensing of this technology to current manufacturers will be the first phase of this two-part development program. The manufacturers who license the new technology will also be under contract to offer the modification to all existing owners as an after market add-on.

(2) concurrent with the above licensing arrangement, Pacific Intertech Corporation will proceed with the development of an engineering prototype of an entirely new distiller design that will further enhance system output(or lower production costs), reduce operating system temperatures and simultaneously reduce production costs.

A final feature which can be incorporated into this new prototype will be the ability to constantly sterilize the stored, distilled water product, a feature which is absolutely necessary for all dental and medical applications of future distiller designs and which will be most helpful to consumers as well.

The second phase of this program will involve the solicitation of independent development funds for this new distiller technology. The development model(s) will be evaluated to determine if the development investor is desirous of proceeding with the design on their own or whether the new technology will be licensed as an entire entity to either existing or new, outside manufacturing sources

We are confident that these features will make our new distiller the dominant product in the water distillation market. There are currently no known distillers available that offer all of these advantages in one product at ANY price,

Near term & Long term Objectives

Our objective is to continue working with the technologists to take engineering prototypes of their technology and move them forward into manufacturing prototypes in order to complete licensable products for our joint venture/development partners.

We currently have a wide assortment of technologies in various stages of development that could lead to new products in the fields of medicine and health, electronics, nutrition and heat transfer within the next 1 to 2 years. Beyond that, ongoing research into further development of existing technologies and the development of new technologies will be continuing behind closed doors.

Only after a technology has been brought to the engineering prototype stage will it be brought out for development by Pacific Intertech Corporation into a licensable product for the benefit of our contributing partners. This will ensure that our development strategies remain as confidential business strategies which are not available to the prying eyes of our competition.

Pacific Intertech Corporation will need approximately 2500 square feet of space for offices and development laboratory work. Operations will begin with one engineer who will work on the distillation project and ongoing analysis and evaluation will lead to the determination of when and if additional help is required to complete this project.

In the meantime, there are other technologies which are either ready for engineering prototypes or are already in that stage and we will need one engineer to lead the product development effort of each of these projects. The cooling technology, the juice sterilization technology and the area sterilizer each are at the point where external financing can result in immediate prototype testing and development.

We foresee Pacific Intertech Corporation having 8 to 10 technical staff by the end of the first year with additional staffing needs determined by the number of technologies and projects being worked on.

We will also need to have a complete array of laboratory equipment in order to complete the building and testing of pre-production prototypes. Some of the testing, will of necessity, need to be performed by independent licensed professional testing laboratories and we will make those determinations and commitments as required.
